I think whenever I see it out over the bay that there must be some great photo angles! Until this morning I'd never seen the parasail launch from the boat, though I've seen it reeled in (I assume) at the end of the ride. It looks comfortable enough ... and the rider stays dry.

Thanks, Syl and Alex. I have no plans to go for a ride, but it's not like gliding: the sail is always attached to the boat by a cable, and if the boat goes fast enough, you stay up ...
